Pills—nubbins that form on the surface of a fabric—are a pain. They're also almost inevitable when working with wool, and other, fibers. They occur because of fiber damage. Pills are the first signal that the fibers in a yarn have been, or are being, damaged. They are indicators that the textile is breaking down. Pills can be minimized in various ways throughout the time we create and care for a fabric: through selection, shearing, fiber prep, spinning, fabric construction, care and use. We cover both commercial and handspun yarns.

Printed document plus free digital version; 8x8" publication. This document contains theory and practical knowledge for fiber arts enthusiasts of all skill levels. The handouts are heavily illustrated.
